Fit people must just be naturally happier than the rest of us. I don't get how these aerobics instructor women can be so cheery first thing in the morning. Maybe it's because by the time I get to the gym I've already done my get-your-butt-up-and-get-moving-because-if-I-have-to-take-you-to-school-because-you-missed-the-bus-I-am-not-going-to-be-happy-do-you-hear-me-not-happy exercise routine for an hour before I even get to the gym in the morning. Whatever the reason, they annoy me.
Here's a typical Wednesday for me:
8:15 a.m. at home
Me (to daughter): Come on girl, let's go, hurry, hurry, hurry, I've got my cardio core class in a few minutes and I don't want to be late. I love cardio core. Love, love, love it!!! I can't wait!
8:30 a.m. aerobics room at YMCA
Little Miss Ball of Energy: Whooooo Hoooooo! Good morning everyone!!!! Let's start running in place! Whoo Hoo! Cardio core, let's go! Let's get those heart rates up!
Me (internal): Crap, I forgot! I hate Cardio Core! Why did I come to this class?
L.M.B.O.E: Whoo Hoo! I didn't even have coffee this morning!
Me: What? No coffee? Blaspheme! No one should speak of such things in my presence.
L.M.B.O.E: Whoo Hoo! Who's heart rate is up?! Cardio core! Whoo Hoo!
Me: Do you think anyone will notice if I leave?
L.M.B.O.E: Whoo Hoo! Everyone stand on your Bosu and jump up and down a bunch! Keep jumping! Keep jumping! Let's do 100 squats! Yeah, keep going!
Me: Bite me.
L. M. B. O. E: More squats, more running, don't you feel so great?!?!?!?!?!
Me: Oh and don't think that you have that perfect body because you live at the gym either. You just got good genes. You're just lucky!!!! DO YOU HEAR ME? JUST LUCKY!
L. M. B. O. E: Okay, time to stretch, everyone relax.
Me: I LOVE cardio core!!!!!! I can't wait until next week!!!!!!
There are times when I find it difficult to be me.
